Russell on August 7, 2015 performed in Goldfish Memory Productions' presentation of Bella Poynton's THE OFFER as part of the 40th Annual Samuel French Off Off Broadway Short Play Festival, Manhattan’s oldest, continuous short play festival.
THE OFFER tells the story of Grace (played by Catie Humphries), who was fired from NASA after the shuttle program was dismantled in 2009 along with 30,000 other astrophysicist and engineers. Since then, she has been working a series of odd jobs and more recently, at Virgin. Now, without even knowing it, Grace’s work is starting to change things for the space industry, making the prospect of human space exploration a dream more tangible than she ever imagined.
Russell Jordan played Mr. Hunter, who fired Grace five years ago, and has now called her back to make a life-changing offer.
THE OFFER was one of 30 semi-finalists selected from nearly 1,500 submissions to perform at East 13th Street Theater from August 4-August 7, and was named one of the festival's 12 finalists and given an additional performance on August 8.
